托福写作的练笔一般都安排在参考学习范文之后。经过了范文学习的过程，考生就可以开始针对不同话题的文章思考自己的观点，列出提纲，寻找supporting details。这样，在做好了充分的准备后，就可以有准备地开始真正的练笔阶段。需要说明的是，如果同学们没有好的模拟写作小软件，建议使用windows自带的写字板，切忌使用Microsoft Word等具有纠错功能的软件进行模拟写作。这是因为托福考试中拼写错误也是会导致扣分的，而自带的纠错软件会帮助考生修整这个问题，让大家无法注意到自己的拼写问题，这对于考试实战就很不利了。而在练笔的最初阶段考生可以不计时间，但熟悉了写作的流程后一定要每次写作都计时，模拟真实的考试环境。
• In the show， if participators answer twenty problems that the host mentioned correctly， they will get five hundreds thousand U.S. dollars as a prize.
• In conclusion， issue of whether parents are the best teachers is a complex one， requiring subjective judgement， consequently， there are no easy or certain answers.
First of all， children can earn money from their jobs， although there isn’t too much， but they will keep their salary gingerliness.
The second argument-it might have been noticed by others-is that in some occasion， it is quite difficult to compare parents to teachers because parents are a kind of people， teachers are a kind of vocation.

If you could invent something new， what product would you develop？ Use specific details to explain why this invention is needed.
I live in a place where the environment is being degraded alarmingly and the desert is expanding rapidly. Subsequently， the people around here are suffering a lot from this vicious environmental vicissitude. So to change the current situation is a great challenge for the people living here. I believe to invent an electronic plant grower is significant to curb the environmental degradation.
Firstly， weather condition is too severe to grow any plants here. It is not efficient for us to afforest in such a vast area either. Furthermore， if the plants could not get the basic supplies like water， amicable weather conditions， it is almost impossible for plants to survive. The invention of electronic plant grower could be scientific enough， when it plants grass or trees， it will automatically put solid ice and other trace elements which could enhance the viability of plants. Thus， the newly planted plants could easily survive in it.
Secondly， the electronic plant grower could do a lot of onerous works in the field and tolerate unfavorable weather. It c...

Task：It has been said， “Not everything that is learned is contained in books.” Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge gained from books. In your opinion， which source is more important？ Why？.
We all crave knowledge， especially in this Age of Information， but what is the best source of knowledge？ Are we to believe Albert Camus， who stated” The place we are to get knowledge is in books”？ Or are we better served by following Albert Einstein＇s counsel that “The only source of knowledge is experience”？ Although books have their place in one＇s learning， there is no substitute for experience； indeed， it is experience that is ultimately the most important source of knowledge.
First， let us consider the knowledge needed to undertake a profession-for example， that of a physician. Knowledge gained from books provides the foundation of a doctor＇s training： study in a medical school begins with a near-overload of reading on anatomy， physiology and maladies both rare and common. However， during this time the medical student is also learning through experience， beginning with dissecting cadavers from almost the first day of medical school. Then， the aspiring physic...
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement？ Most experiences in our lives that seemed difficult at the time become valuable lessons for the future. Use reasons and specific examples to support our answer.
Some people argue that most experiences in our lives that seemed difficult at the time can later become valuable experiences. I cannot agree with them more. There are numerous reasons why I hold confidence on this opinion， and I would explore only a few primary ones here.
Difficulties are beneficial to our personal growth. In the course of our life， we will face numerous difficulties， and each difficulty will help us grow up， and become a valuable lesson for the future. A toddler fells off the ground for many times before he knows how to walk， and a child learns how to swim after he drinks water in the swimming pool. In addition， only after we experienced failures， we know the value of success. We will never appreciate anything that comes so easy. Difficulties can make us feel stronger and be more confident for the future obstacles.
Government should support scientific research even if the research does not have any practical use.
Scientific research can be divided into two types： basic and applied. The purpose of basic research is to yield knowledge， while the purpose of applied research is to yield something with practical value. It may be tempting to argue that governments should only fund applied research—it is the intuitively ＂practical＂ choice—but this would be a bad idea.
First， applied research rests upon the foundation erected by basic research. All of the knowledge and techniques used in applied research have their origins in basic research. All of the work going into understanding the larger universe， for example， currently has very little practical application—why do we need to know about celestial bodies and the like when it might be centuries before we ever travel to them？ But when humankind finally devises the means to send those first interstellar explorers off into the stars， it＇ll be thanks to the centuries of basic research that came before. The needs of the future are difficult to forecast. Therefore we cannot rule out scientific undertakings which have no immediate practical ...
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement：
Parents now spend too much time on determining the futures of their children； children should be allowed to make their own choices.
It is arguable that children should be allowed to make their own choices as they grow up， and it is doubtful the wisdom of parents spending too much time on determining the uncertain future of their children. More wisely， parents are responsible for preparing their children for the future rather than preparing the future for their children. For that matter， what is important is to allow children to have a good education and not to handicap children by making their lives seem easy.
Providing children with a good educational environment to learn life skills is preparing them to meet the challenges in the new world to come. In this changing society beyond prediction， children need to acquire ways and means through education to survive and thrive in the future. Nowadays， to pave the way for their children to have a rosier future， many parents are inclined to have their children go through higher education. The decision being the same， the reason behind may be either that parents di...
Some students prefer to have their final grades determined by numerous small assignments，Whereas others prefer to have their final grades determined by only a few large h do you prefer and why？
It is understandable that students are driven by the desire for grades， so they must be given rubrics with specific information about how their overall work will be graded. Typically， the grading system should focus on motivating students to effectively learn the school subjects throughout the academic year. For that purpose， it is arguable that students＇ final scores should be proportionally based on all assignments， both large and small.
Some students prefer to have their final grades determined by numerous small assignments such as weekly tests or homework. In theory， there are at least three upsides about this. First， as students are supposed to do their coursework regularly， this grading system serves to monitor their progress from week to week with timely feedback. Second， by frequently evaluating the results of students＇ academic performance， teachers can provide step-to-step updates to students on an individual base， normally with little delay. Third， students can get to realize that study...
1、Original： If we agree to say that school offers us the best book knowledge acquisition then our society offers us the best surviving techniques in a hard way。
Revised： If we agree that school offers the best method for the acquisition of book knowledge， then our society offers us the best method for acquiring common sense or “street smarts”。
Agree to say that表达中式化，只需要agree that即可；the best book knowledge acquisition改为the best method for the acquisition of book knowledge（学校给我们提供了获取书本知识的最好方法）更为恰当 ，同样后面的the best surviving techniques改为the best method for acquiring common sense，加上street marks（街头智慧）给文章的托福词汇增添色彩。
2、Original： They can spend more time studying education and communication to improve their role as a mother， wife and daughter。
Revised： They can also decide to spend more time studying， education themselves， in order to improve themselves in their roles as mothers， wives and daughters。
原句中studying education and communication的说法中式化，不符合英语的表述，应该为studying，educating themselves。除了词语表达，此句中还存在其他问题，如名词单复数的使用：不是提高他们的角色，而是提高他们自身以扮演好母亲角色。
还有，女性不止一个人。很多人都在扮演母亲角色，role和mother应用复数，故将improve their role as a mother改为improve themselves in their roles as mother；同样，为保持一致，wife和daughter也可用复数，原文中wife的复数写法有...
